Flats upgrade will improve energy efficiency

WORK began this week on a £1.5million upgrade to sandstone flats in Sandside.

The 300 four-in-a-block flats were constructed in the 1930s and are managed by social housing provider The Riverside Group.

Glasgow-based energy services firm Union Technical will now retrofit the homes with wall insulation, ventilation systems and heating controls to improve thermal efficiency and help tenants make substantial savings on their energy bills. Director at Union Technical Owen Coyle said: “Sandside Estate is a major development for us, and the work carried out is a significant step in helping to tackle fuel poverty in the area.”

The first phase of energy efficiency upgrades at Sandhill Estate is due to be completed in September, with a second phase to replace windows throughout the properties scheduled for later this year.
